Breitbart News, mouthpiece of Trumpworld, reports that the proposed Congressional budget increases the budgets of both the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, agencies that President Donald Trump planned to eliminate in his own budget proposal this year….
Additionally, the budget proposal would increase the budgets of both the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities by $2 million each, bringing their respective budgets to $150 million in total.
It looks as if lobbying Congress has saved arts grants, for the time being. But Breitbart suggests this was a compromise that was forced on the White House. Next time round, Trump will want total abolition.
The picture Breitbart uses was selected to show the NEA as decadent and useless. We won’t reprint it.
